Enjoy the Power of Seeds with the 5 Seed Butter Spread + a No-Bake Energy Bites Recipe
Not everyone can eat nut butters. Whether it’s an allergy or you just want a tasty, healthy alternative to peanut, almond, cashew or other nut butters, there several options including the Beyond the Equator’s 5 Seed Butter Spread.
Founded by farmer Carl who began farming sugarcane in Louisiana 40 years ago. As his passion for farming grew, he began traveling south of the equator to farm where he discovered superfoods in Bolivia and Peru. Carl realized these nutrient-packed crops were underused and unappreciated in the states, so in 2017 he co-founded Beyond the Equator to merge superfoods with everyday life.
This now includes a line made with five nut butters made with chia, flax, pumpkin, sunflower, and hemp seeds that come in a variety of textures and flavors such as creamy, unsweetened, chocolate, and crunchy. Packed with nutrients, the nut butters also include 8 grams of protein along with healthy omega 3’s, antioxidants and fiber.
Additionally, the 5 Seed Butter Spread are also made in facility free from the 8 top allergens (including peanuts, tree nuts or soy) and free from any GMOs. The line is also naturally gluten-free as well as vegan and keto, too. We love dip it with fruit and veggies as well as in sandwiches and in smoothies. We also recently used it in for Chocolate Chip No-Bake Energy Bites (see recipe below) and loved how it added depth, texture and a rich flavor to this favorite snack.
No-Bake Chocolate Chip Energy Bites Recipe with 5 Seed Butter:
1 cup of oats
1/2 cup of 5 Seed Butter (we used creamy)
1/3 cup of maple syrup
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of chia seeds (can also use flax, hemp seeds, etc)
pinch of salt
handful of pumpkin seeds
Place everything in a bowl and mix. If the mixture is too sticky, add in a bit more oats. Roll the “dough” into small balls. Place them on a tray and refrigerate. You can devour in around an hour but the bites retain a stronger consistency the longer you chill them.
